“He has a big family and so do I. My father’s side is pretty big,” Gypsy shared. “It’s something I am relieved about because it’s like, a lot of people in here they don’t always have that family support.”

She continued, “I was very concerned when we first started dating, because I was like, ‘Oh my god your family is going to think of me like I’m in prison for murder!’ And he was like, ‘No my mom has watched the documentary and my grandma has watched the documentary and my grandma, my brother and everybody has watched it so they know your story and they do have a heart for you.’ So I didn’t have to explain everything, it was sort of already known when I came into the picture.”

So, on the October visit, he held my hands close and told me how much I meant to him and he’s like, ‘I would really, really be honored if I could have your hand in marriage,’ and I said yes.”
